1999 Dodge Dakota V8 from North America
A real pile of junk
My catalytic converter went out at 78,000 miles.
My head gasket went out shortly after that.
Has front end problems before reaching 90,000 miles.
I had a 1998 regular cab Dakota, and I absolutely loved it. Then I upgraded to a 1999 extended cab Dakota, and have had nothing, but problems. Had it only for a few months then everything started to go wrong. The only thing I've liked about it is the size, it's perfect, but not worth it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I own a 1999 dodge dakota club cab and its the best truck I ever owned. So you must have got a bad truck is all.

I own a 1999 Dakota with 210000 miles on it. Would not trade it for the world. It's had a few problems, but has never let me down. I love my truck. All vehicles are a POS if they don't run!
